Loved every bit of my first Izakaya experience at Shukuu! ⛩

The interior was so intricate and beautifully decorated which made the ambience feel very authentic, transforming this corner of Stanley Street into a little piece of Japan!

I fell right in love with Sake when their experienced Sake Sommelier recommended their weekly premium sampler of Roma Sake ($9) from Fukushima. We were told that it was brewed with sticky rice at the very end of the fermenting process to give the Sake an extra burst of creaminess and sweetness. 🍶🌾

A must try would be their Gyuniku Jaga ($7), a beef potato stew which was very flavourful and filled with umami in every sip. 🍲

Will definitely come back again for more!

I am a big fan of unagi and sashimi so when I found out that Teppei Syokudo’s Man Man Unagi Bowl had both my favourite things I knew that I had to try it. The unagi was softer than most places I have tried and was very flavourful, which complemented the cubed sashimi in the Kaisen Bowl. Not forgetting the sweet Ikura which helped balance the savoury Donburi. The portion was quite generous too. Great for unagi lovers!

I used my Burpple Beyond for this visit and it was very value for money.

For $16, we had 2 Dons - My Boyfriend had the Pork Katsu Don which was quite authentic in his opinion as the Pork Katsu was well done, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The egg that came with his don was fully cooked but moist, which he felt was quite close to the originals he had tasted in Japan.

I had the Salmon Chirashi Don pictured below and it went well with the soy sauce they provided. I loved that they added fried tempura batter to the don to give that extra taste and texture to the entire meal.

Their Chawanmushi was really yummy as well, one of the best I have eaten so far.

Unfortunately as I was seated near the sink, I was splashed with some random droplets which came out of nowhere - dish water(?) - so that was a bummer from otherwise a fairly nice dining experience.

I had their original Butao King with their traditional signature Tonkotsu broth. I found it really interesting as there was this umami taste that was different from the usual ramen broths, perhaps a bit of shrimp was boiled together to give it that extra seafood flavour. Really enjoyed drinking the soup as it was flavourful but not overwhelming.

My friend had their ramen style egg which looked so appealing and yummy so I’d definitely get that the next time I’m there.

Great service by their staff as well. Will definitely patronise again!
